Positive start into the Arenacross Tour 2019
Podium for Carl Ostermann in Belfast!
The weekend brought the start of the AX Arenacross Tour 2019 in Belfast for FOX youngster Carl Ostermann. The faster and less demanding tracks which are typically for Arenacross, caused always less problems to Carl in the course of the event. Thereby the fourteen-year-old from Bonn had already the fastest lap times in the time practice on Saturday. After winning three from four starts, he reached fourth place in the overall ranking on Friday and third place on Saturday, resulting in his first podium.
Carl before the return flight on Sunday:
My speed was good and the starts all worked out, but in the races, I didn’t defend my lead position with sufficient consequence and I wasn’t focussed on my racing enough. That’s what we’ll be working on in the next races!
Carl finished 3rd on night #2 showing some good speed in practice time and during the races. He is starting to adapt to his new class and I know he will get stronger as the championship progresses. It was a good first event.
